The Guelph Storm have traded forward Mason Primeau to the North Bay Battalion, the team announced on Thursday.
Guelph received two second-round picks in the OHL Priority Selection in 2020 and 2022 in exchange for the 17-year-old.
Primeau had three goals and four assists in 20 games for the Storm this year.
“I think clearly Mason was looking for an opportunity that, unfortunately, we weren’t able to provide at this particular time,” said George Burnett, Storm’s head coach and general manager.
“Everybody wants to play more, whether you’re young or old,” he added. “We dealt with it as best as we possibly could and we wish him well.”
